The Divorced Billionaire Heiress chapter 128
“Molly likes you a lot, so she must’ve uploaded your information into Tigger’s brain, hence this reaction. By the way, she’s also in J&L’s research team, so you’ll be able to meet her in a while.“
Maverick nonchalantly tossed Tigger to Nicole, who carefully caught it.
“Tigger, let’s go see Molly! “
“I want The Great God to hold me…“ Tigger struggled in Nicole’s arms and asked aggrievedly.
Nicole could never refuse any of its requests, so she caught up to Maverick. “Second Brother…“
Maverick was used to seeing such AI robots and was clearly not as obsessed as Nicole because he did not have much emotion to things he could manufacture. For him, it was just a machine.
When they arrived at J&L’s lab, Tigger immediately became the crowd’s focus.
“Little Traitor, did you miss us?“
Tigger held his head high and gave a haughty grunt. “Who are you people?“
The crowd was speechless.
After that, someone took Tigger to Molly Stewart. Gerard Lichman then led their group of seven to the predetermined location.
On the way there, Gerard looked back at Maverick from time to time and said, “This gentleman looks a bit familiar…“
Before Nicole had a chance to introduce him, Maverick spoke, “My name is Sunner. I don’t know you.“
Gerard nodded and raised his eyebrows. He did not seem offended by that and said, “Is he a recent graduate? Never mind, he must be good since you brought him.“
Nicole did not take the initiative to mention that she wanted to send Maverick to the core R&D team. She was not interested in their trade secrets, but as long as she could grasp the latest developments, she had already achieved her purpose.
Therefore, Maverick’s identity need not be exposed.
As soon as she got out of the car, Nicole saw a group of people walking towards them.
Eric Ferguson looked cold and noble as he led a group of seven or eight people.
Gerard stepped forward and said, “It’s a coincidence that the three parties in charge of this project are the three of us bosses! Mr. Ferguson, it’s rare that you’re personally leading your team this time.“
As soon as she heard this, Nicole was irritated. However, this was business, so she had to look at the big picture.
Eric’s gaze faintly swept over Nicole and landed on Gerard. “I’ve seen the location. I’ll make my own arrangements for other necessities. Since everyone’s here, let’s begin.“
Nicole went in with no intention of greeting him.
Eric glanced to the side and watched her departing back meaningfully.
Gerard went up and patted Eric’s shoulder, smiling playfully.
“Don’t look. She’s now President Nicole and is more unlikely to look back. You, on the other hand… Are you starting to regret it?“
Eric’s cold gaze swept over Gerard. His tone was stern as he said, “Mind your own business! “
Gerard laughed and shook his head. “Do you dare to say that your personal involvement in this project is not because of her?“
At first, Gerard did not think that the two exes would get back together, but since that day when Eric asked him to invite Nicole out for a meal in his stead, he sensed that something was wrong.
Afterward, he felt that his thought was a bit outrageous. Why would Eric Ferguson go back to an ex?
Gerard then dismissed this idea.
However, seeing Eric here at this moment made him doubtful again.
The two men walked side by side. Eric frowned slightly and asked, “Do you have the list of people who are representing Stanton Corporation?“
Gerard sent it to Eric on his phone. This information was not confidential anyway. “Sunner? Do you know who this is?“
Gerard casually replied, “A fresh grad, I guess.“
Eric hooked his lips in silence and did not speak again.
‘Nicole is really capable to get a national-level expert to participate in a business project, and so easily at that! How unexpected!’ Eric thought.
Eric had also intended to poach Maverick to participate in this project. With Maverick involved, this project was a sure win!
He thought, ‘I guess it’s a coincidence…’
Gerard found it strange that Eric Ferguson would pay attention to a student.
When they got to the conference room, Eric saw Nicole and Sunner leaning closely together while talking, which made him frown.
His heart also felt extremely uncomfortable.
Eric’s eyebrows had a hint of annoyance as he went in with a gloomy face. He walked in big strides and sat down opposite Nicole.
Seeing this, Gerard immediately understood.
Gerard sat down on the main seat and paused for a moment.
“On behalf of J&L Corporation, I ‘d like to officially welcome the arrival of our two partners. With regards to this research project, Ferguson Corporation has already sent their people to participate in the follow-up works. Ms. Stanton, who do you plan to have to represent your side?”
Nicole smiled and looked at Maverick, who was next to her.
“Sunner, I’ll leave this to you.”
Nicole gently grabbed Maverick’s sleeve, which was a little habit of hers.
Maverick then patted the back of her hand with familiarity.
Eric noticed their actions, so his brow furrowed even deeper.
Gerard nodded. “Okay, he can get acquainted with Molly Stewart in a moment.”
Eric suddenly questioned their decision in a cold voice. “Not everyone is qualified to participate in this.”
Nicole lifted her eyelids insouciantly. “I call the shots here.”
